Christian Pfannberger of Team Elk Haus is thanking his guardian angels after a taxi rammed him on a training ride on the island of Gran Canaria. He was taken to the hospital in an ambulance, but the 27 year-old came away with only severe bruising and scrapes.

"I landed full on my hip," the Austrian rider told the news agency apa. "Everything hurt like hell and I was instantly afraid that I had broken my thigh again."

Apparently, the taxi driver never saw the cyclist, and Pfannberger added, "I had at least three guardian angels."
